Matching built-in corner hutches are painted classic blue in this charming little breakfast nook. My daughter Bridget is debating painting the corner hutch in her dining room. I think she should paint it to match the color she plans to paint on the lower half of the wall under the chair rail.

  1. My favorite is the next to the last – with a rectangular table. Most examples seem to have a round table and to my eye, the squared-off banquette needs a similarly shaped table. Just one person’s opinion…
    I also love a “nook” for dining due to its coziness. Of course, my need for a large eating area passed long ago. I’m sure families with children still require some space.
